Technical Standards

Locating Standards in the Library


  • Some standards are government-mandated, and others are voluntary. There may be various penalties associated with not adhering to the standard.
  • Standards are updated frequently to keep pace with changing technology—check to see if the standard you are using is the latest version.
  • Older, superceded versions may be useful in legal disputes concerning the performance of a product that was manufactured when the older standard was in force and other cases.

Most print standards we own are searchable by title or number in the URSUS catalog (use the box below). Some standards may not be cataloged, so check with Heather Perrone if you are unable to locate what you need. 

Current versions of standards are shelved in the Research & Instruction Office or available in a database. To verify the most recent version, consult the publisher's online catalog or one of the comprehensive indexes to technical standards below.

Contact Heather Perrone for assistance.

In most cases, we will purchase individual standards for faculty research. Due to licensing restrictions, we are unable to provide PDFs or other electronic versions. In order for us to acquire a standard for you, please follow these steps.

  1. Determine whether or not Fogler already owns the standard. Heather Perrone can help you with this.
  2. If Fogler does not own the standard, submit an interlibrary loan request.
  3. If the interlibrary loan request cannot be fulfilled (as is often the case) contact Heather Perrone and she will request an order be placed.
